Following the news, Racine County leaders issued a statement saying they "welcome today's announcement that Foxconn has determined the LCD/TFT technology it will build at its advanced manufacturing campus".
"We look forward to continuing to expand our investment in American talent in Wisconsin and the US", Foxconn said in its statement.
Foxconn had said it was considering a high-tech research hub for the site, earlier planned for making LCD panels.
